MLB Dumps on Little Leaguers

Major League Baseball Properties has announced that from now on, any
Little League team that wants to use the name or the logos of a major
league team has to pay a full-price licensing fee.

No more Dodgers, Giants, Yankees on our little league diamonds.  You'll
be seeing more Knights, Lions, Falcons, etc.

Doesn't MLB know where its future players and fans come from?

  Hey Rich, does this mean that the Braves must now pay a licensing
fee to the Tribal Council for their (ab)use of their idea of Native
American symbolism?

( and the Indians, the Redskins, the Chiefs.... )

I'd like to see this enforced. I can understand logo use, but the names
themselves are not unique enough to trademark. It will never fly. What
next for MLB? Will they sue the football Giants?

If so, I expect a check from the SF area.  I'm 6 ft. 5inches and still
growing.  My Dad was 6 ft. 7!  Some people call us Giants!

Braves in '94!
